Artist statement by Terra Rathai of Minneapolis - I create spontaneously through a process of discovery. My work is about seeing. My process involves being present, actively looking and having both an eye for aesthetics and an open mind. Finding the picture, for me, is a means of revealing transcendence in the everyday stuff of the world. ‘Wet Paint’ expresses a moment of creative energy and freedom - when the colors are fresh, pure and vibrant, and the composition is a riotous swirl of accidental harmony."
